There is no greater contrast in the Bundesliga than in the derby between the East and West clubs in Berlin. The November match of the clubs ended with the victory of Union Berlin, when in the 90th minute a goal was scored after a successful transformation of the penalty, but subsequently the fans threw the field with flares.

Today's game with Hertha Berlin should take place without unnecessary riots, as she will be behind closed doors due to a coronavirus pandemic."We all remember the match in November. It was a black day. Now we have a chance to put it behind us and continue with more dignity, ”said Hertha CEO Michael Preetz."Conditions are very different and that's why it's a different kind of derby than we're used to. Even though the situation is different, I look forward to this match. After all, it's a derby! And you are always special and full of emotion. "Added the new coach Hertha Bruno Labbadia, who last Saturday started his career as a coach with a victory in Hoffenheim 0: 3.The clubs are currently in a close line with 26 matches. Hertha Berlin in 11th place with 31 points is just one point ahead of Union Berlin. Hertha successfully started the season restart when they won 0: 3 on Hoffenheim. Union Berlin, on the other hand, lost points at home after a 0-2 game with Bayern. Both teams must go into the match in full, as the number of points achieved may cost them a place in the league at the end of the season.
